Just another late game card like Rag, or Doctor Boom, something with a fast impact on the board. The deck will be a lot weaker without them though,

What do you think of running recombobulator to regenerate giants? Also, could you explain the reasoning behind removing cards such as loatheb, faceless manipulator and the second mortal coil? Thanks

I think the Recombobulator idea is nice, but it's a little too situational. I think the best time to run them is when you've cut one or more Farseers to make room for stuff, if you still have the Farseers in your deck, that's all the Giant healing you should need.
 

Loatheb is out because the GvG Meta is mostly minion combat right now, Miracle Rogue has gone, and there's just a ton more quality minions, which means people are building decks with less spells in them.

 

Faceless, just to make room for other stuff. Faceless was a card that was played in Handlock often just to fill a gap where nothing else worked, now there's more options for unique cards in those spots.

 

Coil, because I felt like 3 super early game cards was too many, and i'm a big fan of the Gnomes right now.

I have been finding that the clock work gnomes have not really been performing well in a control match up. Also i was wondering what do you think about replacing it with sludge belcher or maybe lil exorcist

If you cut the Gnomes, the first thing you do is put the second Coil back in, the other card is fairly flexible, you can try Belcher, or another late game card like Dr. Boom or Rag if you're struggling vs Control.

You left in the strategy for Lothab, but he wasn't in the decklist wink.png I assume you meant to replace that with talking about Sylvannas and being a minion heavy format right now

What do you think about fitting in a Recombobulator. Is there a card worth swapping out for this one? Would it make sense to use the Recomb. card on something like the Antique Healbot? (With its weak attack/defense and mana cost at 5.) I understand the random factor here, but I turned an AH into a Mimiron's Head--unfortunately, not a card I could make great use of, alhtough superior in stats.

 

I am new to the game (this kind of game in general). This is a fun deck to learn from. I discovered quickly that playing Lord Jaraxxus before playing the Molten Giants (one or both) makes it more expensive to play them. I didn't realize that Jaraxxus literally replaces your hero and his health pool determines the way the Molten Giants work. Live and learn, I guess.

 

Interesting captcha, by the way.

Great deck and really fun to use. I'm new to HS and this is the most I've enjoyed playing so far.

 

Dumb question regarding the Deck pages on Icy-Veins:

If meta shifts enough to cause a change, do you update the deck list in question?

 

Example, if spells were coming back and it seemed necessary to run Loatheb in this Handlock at all times would you update the decklist accordingly? or would you post a comment/write about it in the notes instead and then at a later date, once even more has changed, just make a new deck and delete the older one?

 

Thanks for all your hard work!

I have seen Dr Boom in most decks nowadays. Can I add it to this deck and what do you think I should i replace in that case?

Yes, Dr Boom is definitely good in this deck, i'll be submitting an update soon with a few changes, but for now you can just cut Sylvanas.

KT is not that great in Handlock, if he revived Giants with Taunt after they receive an Argus or Sunfury buff, that would be fantastic, but otherwise, he's not a good option.

      Dave Kosak introduces us to the Monster Hunt, which will be available in a week.
      The Lead Mission Designer was joined by two of his associates to discuss the newest PvE mode, which will come along with The Witchwood. Paul Nguyen talked about the four heroes. Tess Greymane has a Hero Power that lets her Discover any class card that has been played in a game (by both players) and add it to your hand.
      Darius Crowley has an indestructible cannon minion that can be activated via Darius' Hero Power and fire at the minions across it. Positioning will matter, as you can kill two enemy minions at once and the Hero Power will refresh each time you kill a minion with your cannon. There weren't any details on Houndmaster Shaw or Toki, Time-Tinker, but it was hinted that the former hero will have something to do with Rush (just like its card counterpart).
      Giovanni Scarpati discussed bosses and treasures. The Monster Hunt will feature over 45 unique boss encounters. As Ben Brode had revealed in an earlier interview, each hero will have its own final boss, called "nemesis fight". For Crowley it's Lord Godfrey, for Shaw it's Glinda Crowskin and for Toki it's her own future self! When you clear the Monster Hunt with all four heroes (and win four packs), you get to face Hagatha as the last boss. Ultimately, as far as the treasures are concerned, there are a few returning ones from the Dungeon Run, but most are new. There are also hero exclusive treasures, as well as unique treasures "dropping" from rare boss encounters.
      You should definitely watch the video to get a glimpse of all the new stuff coming with the Monster Hunt. And don't forget: it's release date is April 26 at 10:00 am PDT!

      Start stocking up on vials of holy water and cannonballs, because The Witchwood’s free, single-player missions, the Monster Hunt, goes live on April 26 at 10:00 a.m. PDT!
      Join Lead Mission Designer Dave Kosak, along with Mission Designers Paul Nguyen and Giovanni Scarpati, for a Hearthside Chat that will equip you with everything you need to know for a successful Monster Hunt!
      Ready for Action
      If you played the Dungeon Run in Kobolds & Catacombs, the Monster Hunt will be eerily familiar—but much is different! Rather than choosing one of Hearthstone’s nine classes, you’ll take on the role of one of four veteran monster hunters, each with a special ability that you’ll need to make the most of if you hope to survive the hunt.
      Your hunter will venture deep into the Witchwood on Hagatha’s trail, defeating a series of monstrous bosses who dare to cross your path. With each victory, you’ll build a stronger and stronger deck with the items you find. You may encounter some trusty old equipment out in the forest, but much of what you’ll find will be entirely new, including treasures unique to certain foes. Each monster hunter has their own favorite tricks—a special hero power or ability that you’ll need to master if you hope to survive the hunt. Each hunter also carries a grudge against a heinous nemesis in the woods: a unique boss that only they can track down to fight.

      You’ll want to go on a Monster Hunt with every hunter, because each offers a quest that will earn you a Witchwood card pack. And if you’ve got the mettle to complete the Monster Hunt with all four hunters, you’ll finally have a chance to face off with the real witch in the woods: Hagatha! If you can free the wood from Hagatha’s curse, you’ll earn the gratitude of Gilneas and the Monster Hunter card back!

      We hope you enjoyed learning more of what lurks ahead in Monster Hunt! We’re eager to hear your tales of The Witchwood on social media using the #Witchwood hashtag. Learn more about The Witchwood at TheWitchwood.com!
      We’ll see you on the hunt!
